The album "Transitions" is the piano solo recording session performed at the spectacular Villa Dionisi in Cerea in the province of Verona, on a hot day in July 2019.
The whole day is also documented in a short movie that brings the same name as the album and shows the entire recording process.

The eight songs included, all new, are part of the project that Paterlini has carried out throughout the summer on his Instagram channel, the so-called "MicroStories project": short stories on the piano (quite often under the minute of duration) published on a almost daily basis. "How many emotions can you feel in less than 2 minutes?" - this was the leading question Paterlini asked to his audience, while publishing the first song at the end of May.

In the album "Transitions" we find seven micro-stories on the piano plus one piece ("Eyes Closed") fully improvised during the recording session.

The piano, a Yamaha C7, has been modified by inserting a strip of felt between the strings and the hammers, thus giving the sound a soft and ethereal dimension that perfectly melts with the large spaces found in the Villa's halls. The particularly high ceiling (typical of the villas of the time) wrapped the sound in a natural reverberation impossible to reproduce digitally: from the first notes, the listener is thrown into a soft and comfortable environment and the notes of Paterlini cradle him gently, as if suspended in the air.

"Transitions" was recorded during the summer break of the "Piano Stories" European tour, which saw Paterlini play in major European cities, registering, almost always, sold out.
